policy romney. latino romney. but we still haven't seen aqua romney. >> well, maybe that's not a bad idea. it is looking increasingly like mitt romney needs to do something to catch president obama in key toss-up states including ohio where both candidates are campaigning today. in the latest "the new york times"/quinnipiac poll has the president up ten points in the buckeye state. "the washington post" poll had him up by eight. the president pulled ahead in florida and pennsylvania, as well. drastic times call for drastic measures. the romney campaign is out with a new ad and just romney and the came camera. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. >> but that is a tough sell with middle class voters who believe romney's economic policies only benefit the rich. is it time for romney 4.0? so, i dug in to this quinnipiac poll and a few things that were interesting and struck me. first of all, there's so many people have said this election is about the economy. and it is about the economy. but i
his policies against mitt romney's and how the president's policies will build out the middle class, and how romney's policies will build out the 1%, but it makes him focus or let's the focus be on what romney has actually done throughout his lifetime. on his taxes we see that he has invested in foreign countries with secret corporations in bermuda, banks in the cayman islands, switzerland -- >> a lot of americans invest in foreign countries. doesn't mean they're less patriotic. >> but it means that mitt romney's policies are not focused on building out the middle class in america. that's where i think it comes down. the contrast between somebody that really understands what it is and what policies need to be put in place for the strength of this country to come from the strength in the middle class and he can also put in there the auto bailout, carol. we all know that mitt romney -- >> i don't know. >> exactly. >> patriotism is personal for me. i have my own personal beliefs, what you think is patriotic but patriotism to me doesn't have anything to do with the economy. >> let me te
. that is outside the margin of error. there is a solid majority of ohio voters say they think governor romney's policies will benefit the rich. only 9 percent say the middle class will be benefited. less than a third think the policies will treat everyone the same. with president obama, 8 percent say it is helping the rich and the rest divided equally. that is not good for governor romney. this comes after the secretly recorded video of governor romney, saying 47 percent feel they are owed everything by the government and they will never take "responsibility." carl cameron, the campaign dispute as lot of the numbers. >>carl: they do. they point to the fact that real clear politics has five points for an advantage when you average all the polls. the bigger dispute is how most of the public commercial polls are being continue. they argue that the sample, or the personal of democrats in the pool of voters that are surveyed, is artificially inflated. in one poll, it assumes that the democratic registration will be nine percentage points higher than republicans and romney campaign says that is not
on romney's economic policies he would put in place. why wouldn't mitt romney fluent in economics explain his economic policy? because any sensible answer would cause a firestorm in his party. it's obvious with a deficit of more of 7% of gross domestic product, any solution to our budgetary problems has to involve spending cuts and tax increases. ronald reagan agreed to tax increases when it hit 4%. george w. bush did when it was 3% of gdp. but today's republican party is organized around the proposition that no matter the circumstances, there must never be a tax increase of any kind. the simpson-bowles proposal calls for $1 for every $3 of spending cut bus every republican presidential candidate during the primaries including romney pledge thad he or she would not accept $10 of spending cuts if that meant $1 of tax increases. so romney could present a serious economic plan with numbers that add up and then he would face a revolt within his own party. so his solution has been to be utterly vague about how to deal with the actually deficit. when pressed for details, he said, the devil's in
with a president romney and foreign policy and next four years with a president obama foreign colorado. what do you foresee as the difference and where are they similar? >> oh, i think the difference will be significant. normally the republican and the democratic party have really within wibeen within the 40 yaro use a seasonal figure of speech. in the case of this president, we're not. he's way, way over in terms of the policy. governor romney without doubt understands that our country is exceptional. he recognizes the role we've played in the world. he believes the world is a better place if we're a participant in that world, and recognizes that it is not for us to go around the world apologizing and ringing our hands. what's called the arab spring is something happening in the islamic world. it's not arab only, because it's happening in a good many other countries as you know well. it's not spring, but it's summer and fall. it's going to be winter. it is a significant shift on the part of a lot of people in a lot of countries, who are encouraged and see the rise of islamist nonsecular forces in
assistant secretary of state for public affairs and ambassador richard williams, mitt romney's senior foreign policy advisor. welcome to you both. let me start with you, p.j. crowley. what do we do about iran and president ahmadinejad? >> well, this clearly will be one of the most compelling issues that the next president faces, either obama in a second term or romney in a first term. as the president said today, there's still time and space to work this diplomatically. he's put down a very firm position that iran will not have a nuclear weapon. i think governor romney actually agrees with that. >> richard, one of the problems here of course is credibility on all sides, and the reason i say that, i discussed with president clinton earlier the comparisons to iraq. here you have another bad guy in the same kind of region who everyone says has wmd or wants to, in this case, get wmd. it turned out to be not true in the case of saddam hussein. he didn't have any weapons of mass destruction. can the west afford to go into any kind of military conflict with iran, with ahmadinejad, and then d
romney's policies will favor the rich. >> it's been a consistent line of attack for the president. >> i do not believe that another round of tax cuts for millionaires will bring good jobs back to ohio. >> and it features prominently in obama's television ads that have saturated the air waves. they're joust spending the romney team. they have spent $47.9 million in ohio, and romney and outside groups have spent $42.5 million. the romney campaign says it's not bothered by the poll numbers saying they have confidence in their own internal polling and believe their making in roads in ohio and message with lower spending and debt. >> the status quo has not worked. we cannot afford four more years of barack obama, we're not going to have four more years of barack obama. >> if you had any doubt about the schedule, they even have rallies scheduled at the exact same time in different cities. >> thank you, frank luntz is a former hpollster, good morning. >> morning, and i think ohio will win the election. the obama campaign thought this would be a choice. it has become a referendum on mitt romney
. the president is facing a fierce foreign policy attack from romney right now. is this part of the romney campaign reboot we've been hearing a lot about? >> it absolutely is, zoraida. the bumps in the road quote from "60 minutes" have handed the romney campaign an opportunity to talk about something other than his tax returns or that fund-raising video where he yet sized 47% of americans. this has taken over the economy has the main thrust of the romney campaign message. they're hitting obama hard on this. for example, listen to what paul ryan, romney's running mate, had to say about obama's foreign policy yesterday while campaigning in ohio, zoraida. >> i think the president on too many occasions has deferred our foreign policy leadership to the u.n. security council, to the u.n., this means russia and china get to veto what we want to do. why do we want to give them that kind of clout over our national security interests? >> the goal here is to paint president obama as projecting weakness. ryan yesterday compared the situation in the middle east to tehran in 1979. you know, calling to m
is attacking president obama's foreign policy record at a campaign rally in colorado. romney said america needs a president who will shape events and not be at their mercy. jan crawford is in denver. jan, what happened to the reset that the romney campaign said they were going to do talking about economy and jobs? instead it seems like they're talking about foreign policy. >> reporter: right. it was foreign policy yesterday. although, romney has said he's going to be drawing a sharper contrast with the president. we sure saw that here in denver. he hit the president hard for saying recent events in the middle east were bumps in the road. he also criticized the administration's response to those attacks in libya. >> the world looks at the events going on. they don't see these events as bumps in the road. these are lives. this is humanity. this is freedom. >> reporter: campaigning in colorado, romney was referring to comments the president made to "60 minutes," when he said recent events in the middle east were bumps in the road. the white house said the president was talking broadly about events
the president and mitt romney in the same city giving dueling foreign policy speeches. the romney campaign season opening in the wake of the terror attack in libya questions about the president's mideast policy. now as you note both men here in the battleground of ohio today sort of shadowing one another, domestic issues more the focus of course here in the midwest. 18 electoral votes in ohio. no republican has won the white house without winning this state first. as you know "the new york times" cbs battleground poll shows the president up 10 points. 53 to 4 3-point it. there is a lot of talk about republicans that there has been an over sam blink of democratic voters and the votes are being screwed against the romney campaign. nonetheless if you look at "the new york times" battleground poll, for example, previously the president only had a single digit lead here in ohio, now up to a double digit lead. even if it's off a little bit the bottom line is the trajectory is favoring the president at least for now arthel. arthel: on top of all that i should say the economy there in ohio seems t
policy front and center at this point in the campaign. >> i thought it was good mitt romney went there, cracked a couple of good jokes, and you have to say, look at the overall position in this election, it seems extraordinary to me that the polls seem to be widening. when you have a country that's 8.2% unemployment, $16 trillion in debt, gas prices doubling, all of the huge sticks to beat the incumbent president with. and you look at it, mitt romney has to win, the lead stretched to an eight-point lead. why is this happening? why is mitt romney not able to persuade the public, despite the devastating statistics against barack obama's tenure? he's apparently rolling away to victory in places like ohio? >> is that for me, piers? >> yes, richard. >> thank you. first there, are ebbs and flows. jimmy carter was far ahead in his election against ronald reagan, where he was beaten decessively. i think polls would show them statistically tied, tough fights in certain swing states. what governor romney is trying to do is point out the fundamental differences between his faith ain the private s
on the fox news poll suggests that governor romney could turn things around. when asked whether the country should mostly stay on course or whether many policies needed to change, 73% of respondents said change. bret? >> bret: mother jones released another video. it says, shows governor romney in another bad light. 1985 video. mitt romney's discussing bain capital's business strategy that included buying stakes in undervalued companies and then eventually harvesting them at a profit. obama campaign jumped all over that word. what what is the romney camp saying about that? >> the romney campaign came out quickly after that and said this d. "in addition to starting new businesses, mitt romney helped build bain capital turning around broken companies, creating and saving thousands of jobs. the problem today is that president obama hasn't been able to turn around our economy in the same way." we should point out harvesting is a common term in private equity, as in harvesting the investment. a manager i talked to said it's not a bad thing because at that time you have grown a company and created
has to be governor romney has to tie the poor economic conditions we find ourselves in right now to the failure of the president's policies. he has to be able to litigate and make the case that the policies the president has put forward have caused the economy to continue to go down. folks believe the economy is bad right now but what they don't actually believe is it is the president's fault. he has to make that case in the debate with the president standing on the stage with him that the president is the one to blame for the economy we've got right now. >> there is something going on. if he acts too much on the attack, it will look like he is showing disrespect to the president but if he doesn't, then he looks defer yen shl. coach me, tell me how to walk on that stage -- deferential. coach me without being deferential? >> it's a matter of tone and how you address the president. as long as governor romney addresses the president with mr. president, your policies have failed the american people. i think as long as he carries a respectful tone. he needs to be what i would say as p
york city right now. carl, was it expected mitt romney would start the day on foreign policy? >> reporter: well, sure. clinton global initiative virtually guaranteed that. after the terror attacks in benghazi that left the u.s. ambassador dead the mr. romney was clear he would give additional foreign policy speeches in today's speech in front. cgi. we can expect him toe be particularly critical are president for what romney has said has been an inadequate assertion of american values overseas during this mounting violence across the middle east and north africa. this morning at this event with president clinton mr. romney joked about how nice it is occasionally to have introduction from bill clinton and suggested he will wait for the bounce. a reference to the one that president obama got after the democratic national convention insofar clinton's speech was the one best received there. romney holding his partisan punches talked a lot about the world's problems. he says he has a plan to deal with u.s. foreign aid would in essence link it to trade and develop nations willing to

on the economy, the corner stone of romney's campaign and those voters also say they believe romney's policies will favor the rich. >> there's been a consistent line of afact from the president. >> i do not believe that another round of tax cuts for millionaires are going to bring good jobs back to ohio. >> reporter: it features promptly in mr. obama's television ads which has saturated the air waves. the president and his team are out spending the romney team on television though both campaigns have spent more here than in any other battleground state. the president and groups supporting him have spent $49.9 million in ohio while romney and outside groups have spent $42.5 million. the romney camp says it's not bothered by poll numbers say they have confidence by their own internal polling and believe they are making inroads in ohio and message of lower spending and debt. >> the status quo has not worked. we can't afford four more years of barack obama. we won't have four more years of barack obama. >> now if you had any doubt about the importance of ohio look at the campaign schedule today. t
have heard and hear him write these past few months? is there a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encapsulate it? guest: i don't know if there is a romney doctrine yet. governor romney is a very smart, successful person. my guess is that it is not the issue he wants to emphasize in the campaign. once the campaign to be about the economy and the unemployment rate. it is a difficult position for a republican to be running against a democrat who has a strong record on national security. that has been difficult for the romney campaign. i worked for republicans and democrats in various administrations, so i am not a political person. but it seems to me that republicans always try to run to the right of the democrats, and sometimes accused democrats of being weak on a national security. in this election you have president obama, who has taken us out of iraq, president obama who has waged a very tough war against al qaeda, has gone after the al qaeda leadership, notably osama bin laden, who has taken out some of the terrorists in yemen, including awlaki, an important terrorist
of consequence. >> absolutely. >> one of romney's top foreign policy advisors said the other day that obama has made the united states look impo nent the world. dot facts bear that out. >> i disagree with that. i disagree with that. the suggestion that somehow america could or even should be in the drivers seat in the arab spring is inherently ridiculous. i mean what happened in egypt was done by the people, the young people, primarily, in tahrir square. then the egypt that was left having lost its autocratic superstructure was still an egypt, just look at the distribution of the population, most likely to produce an islamist government, with which it did. all along the way we should try to maximize our values and our interests, including freedom and human rights, and not just majority rule but minority rights, and individual rights. but we couldn't control it, and we shouldn't. and i expect that's what president morsi will say here tomorrow. but if you look at libya, we had more opportunities to influence it, and we did. and we influenced it in a very positive way. and they like us more than a
